When Amount Donor To be used for
30/06/2016 £10,000 National Lottery The group will use the funding to set up an outreach service advising asylum seekers about the entitlement for children to register as British citizens. This will enable beneficiaries to access information about services and opportunities which improve their chances in life.
31/03/2016 £15,000 AB Charitable Trust £15,000 towards legal advice and representation
29/02/2016 £60,000 Paul Hamlyn Foundation This application is for the incubation of the Project for the Registration of Children as British Children (PRCBC) which is being hosted by Asylum Aid. PRCBC want to explore whether policy change relating to the registration of undocumented young people as British citizens can be secured by filtering out test cases which can be used in strategic litigation proceedings. A focus on strategic litigation has the potential to set precedent for other undocumented young people to register as citizens by remedying unlawful and poor practice. In addition, Asylum Aid will test whether hosting projects in early stages, can allow them to incubate and grow steadily before being established as independent entities.
11/07/2015 £50,000 Barrow Cadbury To change Government policies to be more sensitive to the needs of vulnerable asylum seekers.
